The fragile Antarctic environment consists of a closely linked system of the lithosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere. Changes in this system have influenced global climate, oceanography and sea level for most of Cenozoic time. The geological history of this region therefore provides a special record of important interactions between the various components of the Earth System. Antarctic Marine Geology is a comprehensive single-authored book to introduce students and researchers to the geological history of the region and the unique processes that occur there. Research literature on the region is widely disseminated. The book is intended as a reference for all scientists working in Antarctica, and will also serve as a textbook for graduate courses in Antarctic marine geology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: ' ... a well-organized format that brings a sense of real progress to a diverse series of subjects. This book is going to be a classic reference.' Eugene W. Domack, EOS: Transactions, American Geophysical Union
Review of the hardback: 'This is a fascinating and well-produced volume ... It is easily readable and refreshingly lacking in obscure language. It deserves a place in any geological library.' A. J. Sheehan, Open University Geological Society Journal
Review of the hardback: 'Although there are several useful accounts of these topics, this is the first time that the subject has received comprehensive treatment. The book, in fact, is more wide-ranging than the title implies, and will thus be of value to all earth scientists and others working in Antarctica. ... this book represents a dignificant achievement in drawing together a wide range of disparate information. ... the book is a valuable addition to the literature. It will prove to be essential reading for all Antarctic marine and glacial geologists, whilst students taking advanced courses in glacial sedimentology will find much of relevance.' Journal of Polar Record
"This book is going to be a classic reference...it marks the transition in our study of the marine realm in Antarctica; until now we have just scratched the surface. These scratches are clearly defined and summarized in John's outstanding book. The future holds great promise as we begin, in earnest, the subsurface exploration of the unique geology surrounding and beneath the frozen continent. Without the contributions outlined in this book, we would never have gotten this far." EOS
"This book, though aimed at professional geologists and earth scientists, could form the basis for a substantial graduate course on high-latitude depositional systems and processes, and it should be required reading for those interested in the glaciological evolution of this critical region of Earth." Choice
"This is a useful volume for serious undergraduate research students and graduate students in the early stages of their career...You should obtain it for the earth-science section of your library, for no other reason than its completeness and encompassing coverage of the marine realm surrounding the Earth's last wild continent." Journal of Geoscience Education
" Anyone interested in Antarctic earth science should have this book, as should anyone interested in global climate changes." Geological Magazine July 2001
